"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

Love I have always felt it and known it for my whole life. Humans say dragons are just mindless beasts that go around and kill for thrill. Well my life shows just how wrong you humans truly are.
My name is Granice Shersickle and I am a light blue, water dragoness. On four legs my height is four feet, two inches. Human women don't like to tell about their age and neither do we dragoness's.
I was hatched deep in the heart of an isolated mountain range that you humans have yet to discover. Just don't think I didn't see the world as a hatchling; my mother, Brasila, thought that traveling and watching the humans from afar would help me better come to terms of the dangers out in the world, past the mountains we called home.
Father he thought differently. My father was a highly respected dragon-clan chief, and everything had to be dragon not human. Now that I think about it, after mom and I would come home after a travel, he would be waitin

He stared at the paper in disbelief, his cold blue eyes scanning it over, looking for where he had went wrong. He grimaced slightly, then changed his expression back to neutral, looking up at his English teacher who was sitting at a large brown desk, writing on something with a bright red pen.
The class bell rang, and students shouted with excitement, milling around him and exiting the classroom. He stayed seated, until only he and the teacher were left in the room.
He stood up and threw his bag over his shoulders, grunting slightly at the weight of text books and homework inside of it. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary though. He walked over to the teacher's desk and stopped, staring at the teacher.
The teacher slowly looked up, his expression changing to a weak, utterly fake smile.
"Sam. What's up?"
He decided to be frank. "Why did I get a 55 on this paper?" He dropped the paper on the desk, with a bit too much force, betraying his frustration.
Death and Her Jokes Dark sticky blood set in a pool around the cool dead body, glimmering like molten rubies. Dirt and old discarded cigarette butts floated on the thick fluid. A horrible stench radiated from the fresh corpse, filling the area with the vomit enticing stench. It was unnatural for a cadaver to stink so soon after losing life, but this wasn't a natural victim. In a sense, she was a victim at all. She was a vampire -a hunter of mortals and a spawn of evil. Killing whomever, just to feed herself. She probably had murdered more humans than any typical killer seen on the news.Death and Her Jokes3 months ago in Profiles More Like This

Dragon AXE - Dragon TFGoing to the store and buying stuff for the house is always a chore, no doubts about it. It's always boring to just walk past those countless shelves, finding at least 30 products that do the exact same things. It was like this with everything...especially with soap, or shampoo. There was simply too much to choose from, and most of the time it was just better to choose pick the cheapest one, or even better, just take a random one all together, to save time.Dragon AXE - Dragon TF4 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Peter was just like anyone else: don't care who produced something, as long as he buys it. That's why that day, as usual, he just walked past every shelf, just randomly throwing something in his basket, not really giving a damn about the price most of the times. He still doesn't know why when he passed the soap and shampoo shelf, he had to stop and look. Something had caught his attention: a bright red AXE bottle.
"Hrm..." He muttered as he picked the bottle up from the shelf to take a look at it. "Wonder what this one is, looks lik

Sabrina was a good-looking girl, and had just turned eighteen. She had long, flowing blonde hair, tan skin, and the perfect face. She was the girl that liked to hang out with a little bit of everybody. She hung out with preps, jocks, Goths, stoners, musicians, and you get the idea.
One day, there was a new kid in school. She was determined to befriend him, since nobody likes moving to a new school in the middle of senior year, and she went up to him.
Hi! Youre a new kid, right? without waiting for him to answer, she went on, My name is Sabrina, and I thought you looked a little lonely over here all by yourself. She gave him the warmest smile she could muster up, and waited for him to reply.
During all of this, he simply had his head lying across his forearms, with his hood covering the rest of his head. He looked up at what he took as a prep, and just put his head back down. He sighed, and lifted his h

While I'm honoured that you'd like to read my works, I regrettably have to inform you that this story has been discontinued after eight chapters and a sidestory merge. There won't be any more chapters in this story, sadly.
I am however working on a new project that will hopefully outshine this old gal - it's going to be released some time in the future, and I hope you'll be there to read that was well.
If you can deal with this story ending abruptly with no end in sight, then by all means read on, and dream.
People dream. It's natural. Daydreams you usually control and you can make them whatever you want. Sometimes they get forgotten, sometimes they spring back to life after a long time, or just a heartbeat. Sometimes, they come true.

Tommy's story technically began a month ago. After coming home from school, Tommy's parents noticed something odd about their son: Even though he was sick, it was only his arm that had an off color to it. As days passed, Tommy didn't get any better. In fact, his condition was actually getting worse. His parents took him to his doctor, whom confirmed that he had obtained a disease called "The Dragon Virus". As a recently discovered disease, the Dragon Virus had no known cure. In fact, Tommy was one of the first people who had accuired the disease. Since there was no cure, Tommy's parents knew it was only a matter of time before the Tommy they knew was gone.
Tommy sat in the lobby at the doctor's office. He scratched at his right hand, which was covered by a glove, as was his left hand. The reason for t

Keane groaned, feeling a massive throb in his head. Leaning against whatever he was leaning on, he fumbled around for his glasses, feeling them on the floor. Picking it up, he put them on, but not before giving his temples a rub. He felt like someone had hit him in the head with a brick, and then hit the brick with his head.
"Vital signs show normal, you're lucky you didn't fracture his skull..." another voice said.
"Well, how else was I supposed to get him? He spotted me, what other choice did I have? Surely, I could not fire on him..." the first voice muttered back.
In a dazed state, Keane looked around, seeing nothing but disorientating bright lights and shadowy figures looming in front of him.
"It doesn't look like him..." that someone said again, "I mean, how could that really be HIM?"
Keane groaned, head throbbing. As his vision cleared slightly, it became apparent that the first voice was not someone, but something. Two figure

These questions ran through 16 year old Josh's mind. His friends had always said he was like a dragon, even earning him the nickname "Dragon Boy" among his group of friends. Regardless of his nickname, Josh himself loved dragons. Even at 16, he had always wished he could meet one. Oddly enough, Josh could actually sympathsize more with dragons than with most humans.
Some of Josh's "dragon-like" traits were the fact that he was a loner. He didn't have many friends. The reason for his having so little friends was because he was very skeptical about new people, even more so than most others. He also hated being around a lot of people. Whenever he was in a large group, even if it wasn't that many people, he always felt too cramped. His parents and teachers thought he may possibly have had some form of autism.

Well, this was just dandy.
Dad had to go to China to help a client, and the whole family was able to come along. Mom thought it would be a nice vacation, so here we are in Beijing, looking for our hotel. It just so happened that we arrived just before the Chinese New Year started off, and businesses would be closed for at least half of the celebrations. This meant we had to stay longer than planned, as Dad wouldn't be able to get finished before the festivities began. And since China is a Communist country well, a longer stay just makes me that much more nervous. I'm just darn lucky that my friend-who-is-a-girl Kim happens to be in Beijing as well to visit her family.
Well, there happened to be one other thing that kept my nerves in check. There was a TON of Chinese dragon memorabilia available, as it was going to be the Year of the Dragon. And, well, I happen to be a big fan of Chinese dragons. I'm not sure why they appeal to me so much, but it's an inte

It was like any day in school. As usual, I had not been able to wake up, and had to rush to school. After the first lecture of the day, I heard my stomach grumble. I had been in such a rush that I had forgotten to have breakfast! So, I headed down to the canteen and bought a plate of chicken rice and was about to buy a can of coffee, only to find, to my dismay that I did not have any money left. Instead, I had to settle for a cup of fruit punch, which was about half the price.
I quickly gobbled down the food, and drank the punch. It tasted weird. My stomach would probably give me trouble over that later. Today was going to be a bad day
And indeed it was. Throughout the entire day, my insides felt as if they were sloshing about. Little did I know that they really were doing just that. I was unable to concentrate during my tutorials and was scolded several times by the teacher.
After school, I quickly made my way to the train station. I w

"Please don't move, you haven't healed yet." the voice made him turn his head rather abruptly, something not so agreeable when you feel your mind's about to twine in half. "Your wounds might open again."
The voice was sweet yet deep, powerful yet kind, fluent yet sharp. Shaun was forced to look downwards and hold his head between his hands due to the pain from seeing a bright light at the entrance of the room, but he soon felt her soft delicate hands on his skull, and a bit of green hair made its way into his vision.
A soft warmth emanated from the woman, as if she had a tiny sun hidden somewhere within; her touch felt almost magical, the pain instantly easing away and the throbbing weakening with every second her hands touched him. As if making Shaun do it herself, she slowly laid him back on the bed, covering him with the sheets and

I tripped as I walked over to it. It was like a giant slide and I slid down for about
half a minute or so. I fell with a sudden thud and lying on my stomach, I slowly got up,
brushing off the rocks sticking to my shirt, and I was shocked at what I saw.
All over the place were little lizards, but I quickly noticed they had wings!
I quickly came to the conclusion that this was...A DRAGON NEST! All of them just seemed
to be staring at me, every now and then I heard a little 'squee' noises they made
every now and then. While still staring at me, they started walking towards me. They
weren't that big, as they were only about the size of baby golden retreivers, but that
wouldn't be a problem, except there were about 15 of them and knew I wouldn't stand a chance
They continued silently walking to me, while I looked all around for a way out,

him. "This is something i never tried before, i'm not sure of what the costume is going to do, but i will not be sure, until someone will buy it, fortunely

created only for one purpose: fulfill his owner's greatest wish, and now he created the perfect costume...well almost, because a living costume that ask
you if you want to become the creature of your dreams is not something everyone can handle, but at least this costume will not force himself on the owner or,
even worse, completely destroy him (it could not be the first time that something like this actually happens).

If she was given a choice between a shopping day at a mall or a day outside, she would chose the great outdoors.
